. hope you enjoy that one. >>> let's go to long beach island, new jersey. cnn's jim clancy is there. jim, this area was devastated. the pictures show it. people still can't get to their homes. are you seeing crews show up there this morning, to clean up, to get the power back up? >> reporter: let me give you a real quick update. we've got heavy equipment moving. they will be plowing sand. remember, literally, thousands and thousands and thousands of tons of sand washed off the beach and swept across the island. they are going to be trying to clear roads today. we've seen contractors moving here almost non-stop. they are going to be trying to board up, to cross-brace a lot of the homes that are on pilings, you know, really in danger because all of the sand has washed away. the pilings are now very shallow. we've got health inspectors coming in as there's food that needs to be just cleared out of here. there's no refrigeration because there's no electricity. all of these fundamental problems trying to be addressed at the same time we've got the election coming up. there's some absentee bal
morning, peter and republican political strategist jim inainasnezi and your beautiful hair. [ laughter ] >> don't say anything. >> let's talk about this storm and the effects on the campaign, the effect it had. were the campaigns pushed back very greatly, peter, let me start with you? >> i think it's in some ways it's tough on the president because he's missing three days, mitt romney missed about a day or so, not even that. and this is important to be out there to energize your troops, get them going, but, look, you know, politics takes a second stage in this kind of situation. the president did the right thing in even chris christie in new jersey, who he's touring with today, was very laudatory about the president. i don't think i can handicap this one way or the other who it would really help but it does take the campaign off the front pages for a few days, that's for sure. >> jim, we saw mitt romney in ohio yesterday helping storm damage victim, sort of blending the two, or did his campaign get put on hold? >> they're donating, instead of getting campaign know nation donations, the
campaign near englewood, colorado. so, jim, seven states tharks is one busy day for romney and ryan. did they generate any momentum today; do you think? >> we're going to have to wait and see, don. if you look at those battleground state polls that have come out in recent days, it doesn't appear that that surge of momentum may have stalled with the arrival of super storm sandy. we'll just have to wait and see on election day, don. if you wait and look at all of these battleground states, it is very cloesz when it comes to the president and mitt romney. we are leaving now and on our way to a rally in englewood, colorado. it will be his final stop here in this battleground state. and, also, john, his final western stop of campaign 2012. we've been hearing him talk nostalgically all day long. he was talking about the long days and the short nights and how his campaign is almost there. it's almost until election day. but really, what he's been doing is delivering his closing argument. talking about what he calls real change for the country. he's been seizing that unemployment data saying tha

know what dixicrast did to intimidate. they were known as jim crow. what we have going on in the 21st century in 2012 is jim crow's cousin, james crow esquire. this is what people need to know. they have planned this for months. this has been going on for months under the radar. it's now out in the open. two, i suspect that t they'veee scott and others will probably keep finding out and we're lucky to find it out just a few days before the election. >> absolutely. >> and finally, reverend sharpton, i will say this again. this is where you tell people, get out of my face because, remember, none of these people have legal authority. they have no legal authority to stop you from voting and that's what you've got to remember. just simply tell them to get the you know what out of my face and go in there and vote. >> now, we started seeing this in wisconsin, now iowa and elsewhere. scott, some liberal bloggers have suggested that project orca could lead in this sophisticated apparatus that we're talking about to voter suppression. give you an example. one blogger, nate samuel downs, quote,
here on the trail, fred. >> all right, thank you so much from milwaukee, wisconsin. and jim acosta is with the romney campaign, which is getting ready for a rally in dubuque, iowa, after a morning stop in new hampshire. we'll have a report from jim in just a few minutes. >>> now let's get the latest on recovery. five days after superstorm sandy, new york governor andrew cuomo said temporary fuel trucks will be deployed around the new york city area to alleviate the gas shortages. drivers will be able to fill up directly from the tankers. new yorkers can also get around the city a little easier now as well. >> 80% of the subway service has been restored. that is under literally, under one week, 80% of the subway service has been restored from what was horrendous damage. >> across the river in new jersey, there is gas rationing in 12 counties in an effort to cut don on wait times there. people have been waiting there in long lines for hours to gas up cars and get fuel for their generators. >> our jim clancy is in long beach, new jersey, which is on the jersey shore. it's very windy,
evacuated. jim axelrod has more from lower manhattan. >> reporter: good morning. new yorkers pride themselves on being intrepid. and right now we still have some people walking along the wall here in lower manhattan. in a couple of hours if they're here, we'll have to look for another adjective other than intrepid. the big worry here is that the surge of water could be as high as 11, 12 feet. that would get over the wall, into the subway systems and electrical systems, and that's what the big catastrophic worry is here in lower manhattan. the transit system shut down schools shut down. 375,000 people from the lowest lying areas in new york have been evacuated as the biggest city braces for the impacts of hurricane sandy. charlie? >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> meteorologist from cbs 4 has been watching sandy closely. jeff, this is getting scary based on reports you're pulling in. it sounds like this is getting worse. >> good morning, nor amp good morning, everyone. yeah. this storm is getting a little bit worse in the atlantic now. you see that the core of th

democratic businessman and hotel owner jim graves. he is convinced bachmann's failed presidential run is helping him. >> i definitely think people feel left out here. she hasn't been in the district or on the floor in congress. she just hasn't been representing the people. she hasn't been a voice for the people. >> reporter: a run that didn't sit well with some of her constituents. >> i think it hurt her because she really wasn't doing anything for the voters in her district. >> i think that was a waste of time and she wasn't maybe doing her job and i was paying for that? sure. i do. >> reporter: bachmann admits there's been fallout but remains confident. do you think your presidential run hurt you or helped you in the district? >> oh, i think that it -- i think there's both. i think there's a lot of advantages that came from it and i'm now applying that to the run this time and all of the polling numbers look very positive and people appreciate the work that i've done for the district so we're all happy. >> reporter: bachmann's fame makes her a prolific fundraiser and she is spending
rally in new hampshire, and now he is headed the iowa. our national political correspondent jim acosta was there in portsmouth, new hampshire. >> reporter: mitt romney has kicked off his swing state blitz in this final weekend of the presidential campaign starting the day in new hampshire and then heading next to iowa and colorado. we're hearing the gop nominee touch on some themes that he's been bringing up quite a bit in the last couple of days, saying he is the candidate of what he calls real change. he's also going through his five-point economic plan to get the country back on track, talking about ideas like cutting the deficit, tapping into domestic energy resources and fixing the nation's public school system. but one thing that he has been trying to zero in on in this final stretch of the campaign, he's been going after the president's mantel, being a post-partisan president. in the words of mitt romney, the president has been what he calls the most partisan. here's what he had to say. >> yesterday, the president said something you might have heard by now that i think surprised
when jim crow laws abolished. she is a huge fan of president obama. >>> veterans and their spouses looking for a job may get their break today. the u.s. chamber of commerce holding a hiring our heroes job fair. more than 70 employers will be at joint base anacostia-bolling. runs from 11:00 until 2:00 it has helped find jobs for more than 10,000 veterans and their families. >> great effort there, great service. let's hope veterans get jobs. >>> news 4 continues right now at 5:00 a.m. stay with us. >>> it is not safe there and nowhere else. >> i don't care about your house, i would rather care about your life. >>> a long week for millions, tensions build as the northeast tried to return to normalcy while city leaders try to manage public safety. good morning. >> welcome to news 4 today for friday, november 2nd, 2012. sandy's impact is not over for millions of people. the storm blamed for at least 90 deaths across the east coast. much of new york and northern new jersey under water or in the dark. one power company restored power to nearly 1 million, but many still don't have power. a

website, c-span.org. jim is in orlando, florida. he's on our line for independents. jim, you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: i'm optimistic after the election. i think that a lot of companies have been holding out hiring this year. i think it all comes back to the money. and when i say the money, a lot of the billionaires, when they see that their taxes are going from 14% to 36%, they're going to do whatever they can to make sure that the president looks bad as far as this year. when you look historically, the first quarter of the year is usually slow. we had a good first quarter. in the second two quarters, jobs have been anemic. i think the last two or three years, we slowly climbed out of this mess, and it will take, as clinton said, another four years to get out of it. but i do see some positives. host: jim, do you really think that business owners are going to risk profits and losses based on trying to make the president look bad? caller: i don't think business owners are. i think that big corporations that have billionaire stockholders -- if my taxes were going
or a businessman? good point. jim irwin on the political side tweeting will hurricane sandy make for paper ballots rather than electronic in states where the power is down? the idea of what we're going to do about election day is starting to loom. that's going to be, i think the next big thing. >> bill: it is because the storm is going to be around for so long and the focus immediately after -- let's say by today right. maybe in parts of jersey and delaware and even here in the d.c. area, it will be clean up rather than more storm. we're not dealing with storm so much as cleanup. that will take a couple of days. >> six and a half million people are without power. six and a half million people are without power and we're a week away from an election. >> bill: charles calling from tampa, florida. hey, charles. >> caller: good morning, bill. i just want to -- fema sent trailers down here years ago to be used. fema said you have to take them. florida wanted to give them back to fema to be used. fema said no. they stay where th
. but service is limited and the city faces another day of serious transportation trouble. jim axelrod is at the tip of lower manhattan outside the staten island ferry terminal. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning. big step for new yorkers and a psychological boost, to at least have partial subway service restored and to ease some congestion on the roads. there won't be any subway trains coming in and out of here. not today, not tomorrow. not for a while, it would seem. three days after superstorm sandy swept through new york, the city's road to recovery is literally gridlocked. >> traffic is terrible, man. takes 45 minutes just for four block blocks. it's horrible. >> reporter: commuters turned manhattan streets into parking lots. a telling sign of just how badly the city needs its mass transit system back. >> i am declaring a transportation emergency. >> reporter: this morning 14 out of 23 subway lines will begin operating. but none will be able to run below 34th street in manhattan and into brooklyn. multiple tunnels and stations in that area remain flooded with sea water.
. jim smith: question seven will bring table games like... blackjack and poker to baltimore. stephanie rawlings-blake: you're talking about 500 new jobs. ken ulman: and increased tourism will mean more business... for maryland's small businesses. jim smith: and instead of marylanders spending... five hundred and fifty million in other states... ken ulman: question seven will keep that money right here. stephanie rawlings-blake: more jobs, millions for schools. jim smith: i'm voting for question seven. ken ulman: i'm voting for question seven. stephanie rawlings-blake: and i'm voting for question seven. chances are, you're not made of i'm voting fmoney,stion seven. so don't overpay for motorcycle insurance. geico, see how much you could save. >> you are watching wbal-plus. live, local, latebreaking. this is 11 news today at 7:00 a.m. >> in case you're just joining us, a little good and bad news. this storm is getting stronger. the good news is that we will avoid the worst-case scenario that was a possibility of to a little while ago in baltimore. the sustained winds went up to 85 miles
of serious grid lock. jim axelrod is in lower manhattan. >> reporter: that's a crucial piece of news. 227,000 customers still without power in manhattan, although we are told now by saturday power should be restored fully in new york. now, as for the traffic that we're talking about, the massive traffic situation, city's bridges and tunnels absolutely choked with vehicles. traffic lines stretching for miles. through midnight tonight, police will refuse entry into new york for vehicles less than three passengers. public transportation is helping, although lines for shuttle buses reached three hours yesterday. getting rid of water is the top job here. a group of what's called unwatering experts from the army corps of engineers is here to help and they expect to suck out about 10 million gallons of water. from california, 70 power trucks are being air lifted here to help restore power. but the bottom line, charlie, is the more -- the quicker the power is restored, the sooner congestion will be reduced. charlie, norah? >> jim axle rodriguez, thank you. >>> the cia is fighting back against cha
're sfeng pen so much time in ohio. let's take a view right now from the ground level. jim acosta is with the romney campaign in north canton, ohio. brian brianna keilar is at the white house. is the romney campaign showing any signs of concern over their ability to win ohio? >> i just talked to a senior romney advisor who said no, they are going to win ohio, but he did say this race in this state is going to come down to independents. whoever wins independents in the words of this romney advisor, that candidate is going to win ohio. now, there's a little bit of spin in that because if you look at recent polling like an abc news/"washington post" poll that came out yesterday, governor romney is doing well among independent voters so it makes sense they would be talking about that advantage right now. at the same time, there are signs that yes, the romney campaign is concerned about this state and talking a little bit about what john king was mentioning a few moments ago about the auto bailout, we heard one of romney's top surrogates, rob portman, defend mitt romney's stance on the
rove super pac putting $2 million into pennsylvania. i was on a conference call with jim mess siena and jafds axelrod saying that's a bluff, that pennsylvania is not a problem. if people are worried about coming back from power outages which could last a week or more as they did after irene, and if people cannot get to the polls? this whole thing could be thrown up in the air. >> what's hard for me if you're trying to analyze this, well the president gets to look more presidential and that's good and mitt romney is sidelined or the president's voters won't be able to turn out. what's difficult this is a variable into an evasion that really has not changed basically two plus two has equalled four almost this entire campaign. it's been close. mitt romney has been behind slightly but it's been close. throw this other variable into this problem that we thought we had pretty much close to knowing the answer, close one or way the other, who knows. i think we focus on today, tomorrow but wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday into the weekend, can they resume campaigning? even if they do, t
spoke with the former head of the republican party of florida, a guy named jim greer who is in his own trouble over charges about some illegal money thing that he was doing, but when he was running the party he told me that republican consultants came to him and said, we want to craft a bill that would get rid of early voting if we could, or severely cut it, because in the words of these consultants, according to jim greer, all it does is bring every african-american out from under a rock, that's a quote, and get them to vote for democrats. they don't vote for us, it doesn't help us. so the republican legislature which in 2010 became more tea party, more conservative, there's no margin in it for them to increase access to in-person early voting. what they did is passed a law that didn't touch absentee voting, which republicans tend to dominate in, but severely limited the early vote. just to give you some numbers, you're talking about there were 96 hours, there are 96 hours this year total to vote. there were 120 hours in 2008. and already in the state, 3.46 million people have voted.
jersey. jim, tourism is huge for folks where you are. how will people move forward? tell me what it looks like today. >> reporter: well, you know, the way that this community of belmar is going to move forward, it is a small community. about 6,000 people year around. 60,000 in the summertime. perhaps even more on the weekends. the only way that these people can move forward or the business community can move forward, tourism can move forward is to get the water out of here, brooke. you know, you look at this stream and say the waters will rece recede. no, they won't. the town is something of a bowl. there are two lakes, two natural lakes. they have to pump that water out. before we get off that shot, brooke, you will be interested to know, bruce springsteen used to go jogging down this street where you see the water. >> where we see the kayaker. >> reporter: down to the beach every morning. yeah. we have met the kayaker and seen him at work today. but i can tell you right now out on the beach, they're really at work and what they're trying to do is pump two inland lakes they have in this
. dan came in here in 2006 after being gone for many, many years to challenge jim walsh. >> moderator: okay, do you want to come in now? >> what's the question? >> moderator: you have not been the subject of the attack ads, but you have a positive message you want out. you have a 60 seconds on an issue of your choosing. >> thank you. i'm a central new york stative born and raised in syracuse, my parents from poland in the 1980s, they came here basically believing that this is the kind of country where you work hard, you can create a good life for your family, and that's not the case anymore. the american dream is far out of reach of too many people so what i support is the green new deal, public investment to put people back to work meeting today's challenges. that means addressing unmet community needs whether it's updating our hundred-year-old sewers in syracuse, developing energy for real energy independence. it support these policies to put, you know, the communities and put money in working people's pockets. i think we need new leadership. i said it before. my opponents represent
's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have mentioned in the reporting, at least 16 deaths total being blamed on this storm. downtown here in lower manhattan, can you see the waters have receded. at the height of the storm though here in battery park there was a storm surge of 13 feet. that is a record-breaker here in new york city. at least 6 million pe
this morning while drivers could see another day of serious gridlock. jim axelrod is in lower manhatt manhattan. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this gives you a pretty god idea of what the commute is like on this friday morning. the traffic signals are out. because there's no power. that creates quite a bit of chaos at the intersections as these negotiations go on about who is going to get the right of way. all over the city, as we said, chaos. the bridges and tunnels choked with vehicles. traffic stretching for miles. through midnight tonight police will continue to turn away cars with less than three passengers. public transportation, lines for shuttle buses reached three hours yesterday. getting rid of water that's still flooding out tums and roads. tough job here. army corps of engineers is here to help, planning to suck out 10 million gallons. trucks being air lifted here to help restore power. pretty simple equation. the quicker they get power on, the quicker the congestion will be reduced around new york. con ed, the power company that takes care of new york city says by tomorr
be the odd surprise. >> jim? >> keep an eye on hispanic voters. >> that's what i agree. most pessimistic, romney side. what do you think? >> definitely nevada. definitely iowa. i guess wisconsin. wisconsin, ohio. they need one of those two. >> well, no. one of the other ones. either iowa or ohio or wisconsin. >> liz, what do you sense is the closest state? what's going to be the closest state? >> it's going to be my state. >> you think it's going to be the closest state? >> i think at the end, that's what we'll see, correct. >> i think it's going to be nevada. >> you think that's going to be the closest? >> yeah, i think that's going to be a razor-thin margin, presumably for romney. >> i'm going to stick with virginia. i've been going back and forth between virginia and colorado. i think it will be one of those two. that's it for this edition of "t"the daily rundown."" before we go, i have to do my shameless plugs. >> my friends and neighbors in new jersey, hang in there. everybody's thinking about you today. >> we all are. that is ditto for everybody. any other shameless plug? >> americ
. it took jim clapper 45 minutes to say, i don't know. the d.o.d. guy said nothing. the fbi said -- we asked, have you been to benghazi? he said, no, i'm in tripply. why aren't nubenghazi? well, it's not safe. well, no kidding. we have had more and more questions than answers. the president really ought to take two hours and that was the tone of my letter and i tried to make it respectful and say, you don't want this... president romney, if he make its, doesn't want this. you do not want to lose the morale of our service people, people put in harm's way. that's not right. i don't like this response, after 9/11, we set up the counter-terrorism threat center. we set up all of these teams around the world. we, meaning the senate intelligence committee and the 9/11 people. here we are again -- first the uss cole, that wasn't first, that was the bambombings in africa, that wasn't first, it was mog scmoag somalia and blackhawk down. now we are to this? we still haven't got it straight! what on earth is going on! thank goodness, you are searching for the truth. >> greta: it's particularly troubling
